A few minutes ago a found an answer that is definitely worth reading! It has 74 up-votes. If I want to see questions with the most votes then I can see them by clicking on the 'votes' tab. Is there a way to see those questions whose answers have the most votes?

Here's a solution, Questions with highest rated answers.
The only downside is you have to append the ID manually to the end of http://stackoverflow.com/questions/

As per Cletus' request, Top Posts in Questions NOT CC Wiki

Here's an updated version for the new data explorer: Questions with highest rated answers . It ignores community wiki questions and answers.


As a workaround you can check users with Great Answer from the Badges page, then on the user profile page, answers are sorted by number of votes


God I wish there was.

It should also have the option to exclude CW answers since they're 90% noise.

I would love to see good programming related answers without all the Dilbert cartoons and wedding cakes.
